With her babybunnies series provocateur/artist/designer Tinkebell aims to provide an analysis of the consumptive attitude people have in relation to their pets. This latest work – an reversible cat/dog toy made from specially prepared cat and dog skin – was inspired by the Popple toys, marketed in the 80s as a teddy bear with an reversible bag (see video).

Thats fucked up. Straight up. Not art. DISGUSTING! It's like the making of a serial killer.

PETA is probably having a conniption fit with this guy.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
